Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The file has been updated. One of the .package files was corrupt and even though it wasn't IN the attachment, having it even on the lot corrupted the whole thing. Therefore, that package (the buffet from VitaSims) has been removed and replaced with a Generations dresser. Please delete the old version and download the new one. *Checked with CUSTARD.

The house sits atop a spiritual and Wiccan nexus and can be swayed to either good or evil, giving a power boost to those that control it. The home has been owned by the Halliwell line for three generations. In the ownership of the sisters, the home provides a base for good and a shelter for the family that sacrifices so much to protect the innocent. It is a fairly open home with large arches and double doors to most downstairs rooms, as seen from the main entry way and from the stairs.



The home follows blueprints as carefully as I could possibly get it. There are some changes, such as the house being wider on the exterior to fit everything inside. Damn Hollywood and their sets. Also, the front upstairs room has been left empty. In the blueprints, this room does not exist yet, from the front, you can clearly see the lower and upper walls are even so there SHOULD be something there. At one point, Piper comments that Grams had a sewing room and when Phoebe and Paige move out, a room becomes the fitness room so that front room could become any of those things, depending on your needs.

The attic includes some potions, the bowl where they mix things, and even the cork board where Phoebe and Paige track demons in later seasons. Also, in the back corner, you can see a glimpse of the "Manor Replica" dollhouse that Wyatt hides Piper and Leo in. The house has 3 tvs (kitchen, conservatory, and Phoebe's bedroom), 1 computer (Prue's laptop) though Phoebe's desk has room for a second, an easel in the attic, 2 bathrooms upstairs and a half bath downstairs (that later becomes a closet for who knows what reason), 3 full bedrooms, the kid's room, the tiny nursery in the closet, and, as mentioned before, an empty room for whatever suits your purposes.




For actual photos of the Manor go here and here and scroll through!
For the floorplan, go here.

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 30x40
  • Furnished - ยง204,585
  • Unfurnished - ยง104,800



The basement stairs placed with no problem and no cheats, however, my sim was not able to go down the short flight and then down the long flight as needed. If you want to use the basement, just teleport the sim there. It is the ONLY part of the manor that is inaccessible which I have to say is pretty damn good with all the nooks and crannies, clutter, and non-matching Hollywood sets stuffed into a mismatched exterior floorplans. If you don't like this, don't download.

Also, as an FYI, if you want to place a vehicle in the driveway, you will have to use moveobjects. The parking places are already there, you just can't see them because they are hiding in the slope. Once the cheat has been turned on, the vehicles should snap to the driveway.

And last, but not least, I want to give a special thanks to missroxor who gave me the information and inspiration needed to finally finish this house.
Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
1329 Prescott Street - Charmed Manor.rar | Description: Fixed File 7.29 MB 9,262 10th Aug 2011
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

If you want the house to look good, dont complain about CC.... This is the best replica I've ever seen for the sims.... the inside is almost photo realistic compared to the set of the house... the decorating and everything looks spot on.... love, love, love it!

Oh!!! Sorry, forgot about that, Because it is sitting on a hill, you can't see the parking spots. There are 2. Turn moveobjects on and then the car should snap in place. Stupid hills. Will edit the main post to reflect this as well.

I got that to. The Custard is a tool that can be used to see if sims3packs are corrupted and possabley fix it. What he meant was that the lot is corrupted its not that it cant be downloaded something in the sims3pack its self is broken .my game has been crashing ever since i (stupidly) installed it. Its a great lot but is crashing my game.

I hate to "stupidly" ask this, but do either of you have all the games required and/or the patch needed?

I have all the games and am fully patched. After i installed your house my game crashed quite a few times. Since i had download some other CC i checked that first, Then i checked the house and it showed up as corruped so i uninstalled. I then played for about 3 hours and have not had any crashes. I really love your house though but after carefully going over everything it seems that it was the house causeing the crashes. It is a great house and you did a great job building. I am only trying to help ^_^
I do want to say i am sorry for the stupidly part of my last post.It was written after i sent 2 hours trying to find the cause of the crashes. I posted in anger and i am sorry.

I have everything but town life stuff and my game is fully updated. I never tried installing it when custard complained.

Edit: I always check the files before I install. My game barely crashes at all now.

I will attempt to repackage it. It has no CC in the file and I am not sure what else may have caused a corrupt package. Give me awhile (it's 7am here) and I'll see what I can do.

And that "stupidly" wasn't a pissed off response to you, just that I feel like I have to ask because there have been several occasions where people don't read the requirements and then get frustrated when things asplode.

EDIT: Found the borked file, removed it from the lot, replaced the missing stuff with game content and re-uploaded. Thanks guys.

I am looking forward to using this with the stained glass window add on that I have been wanting to use. I don't even remember who made the stained glass for the Halliwell windows, but I finally gave up making the manor to go with them. I am glad I can use them on the house I had got the stained glass pieces for in the first place!

Thank you SO much for this build, it's absolutely wonderful!

The antique Chronometer is no longer available in the store, not sure if that was mentioned previously. I would definitely recommend adding Lady Raven's Spellbook, it's the cherry on top of this beautiful build! Other than that, you've made my sims so happy LOL! Took a bit to download and install everything including the CC but more than worth it, thank you!

Yes, I discovered the antique chronometer after but it has since been reflected in the main post. As for the Spellbook, anyone is more than welcome to add that as well. Definitely would be an addition for those who want it! I see it looks good in the house for you!

All of the custom CC is listed in the main post. If you click on the spoiler for CC it gives a list of every item used and pictured plus a link to where you can get it. The only things that are unavailable are the store items that are no longer on their website for whatever reasons.
